Preventative Care

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Benjamin Franklin on Preventative Care.

At Inspire Dental Group, we believe that regular dental hygiene maintenance is a key factor in achieving long-lasting dental health.

Inspire-Dental-Group-Port-Moody-2Often, people find themselves busy with their work or their social lives that they forget to take care of their dental health. This can lead to many complications later in life, including: bad breath, tooth decay, gum disease, root canals, and even oral cancer. Dentists recommend getting preventative care such as routine teeth cleanings at least every 6 months.

Coming in for teeth cleanings and check-ups regularly will help maintain your oral health and detect any problems early on. Regular visits to the dentist can also help avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. Regular teeth maintenance could save you some money in the long run!

Our maintenance program includes regular oral hygiene care and examinations including:

Scaling and root planning

Removes plaque and tartar between the teeth and gums, down to the roots, which accumulates over time. This helps remove the bacteria that causes inflammation of the gums, which can lead to gum disease.

Polishing

Removes stains on the surface of the teeth to make your teeth shiny and smooth!

Fluoride

Fluoride treatments are a form of preventative care that fights tooth decay and protect against cavities.

Professional examination

Regular dental check-ups are recommended every 6 months. This allows for early detection of oral problems and prevention.

Digital radiographs (x-rays)

Sometimes an in-depth look at your teeth and gums is required to provide a better understanding of your oral health and to detect certain diseases or cavities that are not visible on the surface.
